by wife Mary, had a son Benjamin of Groton, where he m. Mary 
frescott, and their fourth chil. viz.:) 

ISAAC FARNSWORTH 

b. in Groton, 4 July 1701, m._in Groton, Apr. 1723, 
Sarah Page, whose birth and parentage I have not been able to 
ascertain after much investigation. It is no; upon record either 
in Groton, Lynn, or »atertown, the two last being the places from 
which all the Groton Pages came. It is possible, -a.-d perhaps 
probably, - that she was a dau. of "Governor" camuel Page. (1 P) 

They came to this town some years before its incorporation, 
and they lived near tne middle of the town. His p.a.r. in 1757 
was ■£ 0.2. 2.- 26 Acres. He seems to have been quite and intelli- 
gent man, well educated, wrote/a neat, plain hand, and his spelling 
was very much better than that of m^st men of his tine. He took 
an active oart in the affairs of the new town; was the Town Clerk 
(the first) in 1728, and until 1737; was the first Constable and 
Collector in 1728, and '31. School Committee, 1735-*36; Selectman 
1730, *35, '36. They went back to proton about 1758 or f 9, but 
of their subsequent history I know nothing. Their deaths are not 
upon record in "Groton, or, at least, I am quite certain they are 
titoX and I have been unable to find their grave-stones in the old 
cemetery of that town. Perhaps they removed thence to. some of the 



-237- 



new towns on the borders of Now Hampshire, but I know not. 

The names and tine of birth of their children are recorded 
both in this tov.n and in Groton, the latter stating that they 
were born here. As the two do not agree as to dates I give them

A native of ocotlana came to this country, in 1739 or '40 
with a wife and 6 children, and settled in the north part of this 
town. They were Scotch-Irish Presbyterians, quite a number oi 
whom, came here about the same time. They did net connect with 
the Church here, and I can learn but little of them. About 1750 
they removed, with a number or their fellow-countrymen nere, to the 
new town of x'eterboro, N.ii. , then called ^aiem Canada, where he 
became quite a prominent man. He was the first Town Clerk of that 
town, after its" incoruo ration. He d. there. Descendants are still 
living there, but as none of his chil. were b. here, I nave not 
attempted to trace them.

b. /7^>^ m. Susannah They came from Bradford. 

about 1732, and lived in ohe extreme N.V/. part of the town, within 
the present limits of Ashby. 

"The capture of himself, and his family, by the Indians was 
for a long time a memorable event in this -region. Authorities 
have differed as to the time that the capture took place. In 
VfTiitney 1 s History of "orcester County, it is said to have been in 
July, 1749. Torrey, in his history of Fitchburg, corrects the 
statement, and puts it "during the summer of 1747" In brake's 
"Tragedies of the wilderness ," it is said to have been in t he 
year, 1746. But there is on file in the office of the Secretary 
of State, a Petition in Pitch's own writing, which definitely settles 
the question as having taken place July 5, 1748. They were carried 
to Canada where they were held as prisoners until they were ransomed 
by their friends in Bradford. His wife d. on her way home . "Susannah 
Fitch, ye wife of Mr. John Fitch, deceast December, ye 24, 1740, 
at Providence in ye Collony of Rhode Island." (Town Record:-:.) He

b. in Croton 2 Sept. 1710. A story is told of her in Torrey' s 
History of Fitchburg p. 45. 

He was quite active in procuring the incorporation of Fitchburg, 
and it has been supposed that that town was named in his honor. 
H« was likewise very prominent in obtaining an act of .incorporation 
for Ashby, of which town he became a leading man. He was a large 
land-owner, ana was at one time the richest man in Ashby, but he 
lost all his property, by the depreciation of the continent al 
currency and became a town charge. Torrey states, p. 45 History 
of Fitchburg, that "he lived to the good old age of one hundred 
and five years, and died in the poor house of Ashby." This is a 
mistake. He d. in Ashby, but not in the poorhouse, 8 April 1795, 
aged 87 years. A granite monument was erected to his memory, 
which is still standing on the public common and which stages that 
"He procured the incorporation of Ashby, was the first Lloderator, 
the first Constable, and with J. Locke ic J. Jones the firs. Selectman."

in ciodern times, Flag, and Flagg. The last ha3 become the 
prevalent, almost the universal way of spelling it for the last 
few generations, but there is very little doubt, but that it is 
erroneous, and that the correct orthography is Flegg, ilagg is 
not found in Burke* s Encyclopoedia of ^eralary, the standard 
work for early English names, while -clegg is; and in the early

Better than storied marble can."

a few discriminating remarks. Ee was too catholic hi;. self to 
allow his judgment to be warped by the indiscriminate censures 
of others. He remained the minister of this town until 22 
Feb. 1753, when he asked and received a dismission. He remained 
in town several years after his dismission and was emoloyed as "che

(This name Ls not found in. ravage's Gen. Diet. of N.S. It 
is there seen as Gowen a-nu Cowing, and in our early records it is 
always written Gowcn, which is unquestionably the prooer name. 
But the descendants of Lbeneser (33) ana Jonaohan( 91) (booh ox 
whom wrote their names Gov/en) ail spell it Going and I have 
therefore adopted it.)

Lis Gen^Dict. of iwE. calls these entiEJ.v 
different names, but. all the families in this ton '"ho prior to 
about 18-23 uo '25, used the terminal "idge", have almost: v.-ithout 
exception, adopted the "ich", as i have done here. The nar*gi is 
found, in early records written in very many v/ays. The original 
Sazon name was Godric,-and it is seen as Goodricic, Goodricke, 
Gutterig, Guttrig, Gutteridge, Guo.ric.ge, Gudderidge, Gouteredge, 
Goodridge, Goodrich, etc. < 

(John and 'Villian Goodrich came to this country in l s 34, from > 
£ ury St. Edmunds, Suffolk county, Englanu, and settled in 1/atertov.n 
William el. i-argaret and had a son by nane Jeremiah, b. in V7aterto~.n ,

PHILIP GOODRICH. (GOoVKI&GE) 

b. in Eev.tnrcy 23 Nov. 1669. And here I must notice viiat 
seems to be a most surprising error — for error I think it must be. 
It is stated on his gravestone, that "he ''.as tne 2d. chili of 
Joss:- and L.artka, and ^s com in Kevvbury in 1563." This muat ce 
a mistake, nis fattier, Jeremiah, had a brother Joseph -.to m. in 
Nev.'bury, 23 -august. 1564, Martha i~oores, and tuey had 7 children., 
b. in Nev/bury, and "chair births are uoon recora in he .-bury, — bu~; 
there is no Philip smong them. The children of Jeremiah, of 
whom there are 6, are also plaini;^ recorded. It is a singular 
error to have been ^aae, but I -have not tne slightest ciov,3t it 
is an error. I oot.-j.ned a certified copy, frou the recoras ot 



from the records of Seofoury of the families of Jeremiah and ilary 
(Adams) and of Joseph, and ilartha (koores) Goodrich, and they agree 
in every respect with Coffin's History of Newbury* ana with Savage's 
Gen. Diet, of H.E. I night give them here, but tney may be seen in 
either of those woris. 

Philip Goodrich, m. in Newbury 16 April 1700 Hehitabis 
Woodman b. in Newbury 20 Sept. 1677, dau. of Joseph and Elizabeth 
(Stevens) Woodman, and. gd-dau. of Edward "oodman, who came from 
Southampton, Hug- in 1535, and settled in Nev/bury. He was 0.?. 
of lot 70, which is a part of the farm now in the possession or 
his gt-gd-son, Joseph Goodrich, and they built the house, not nov/ 
standing, (180 on the map. He was a Lieutenant. They came here 
some 5 or 4 years before the incorporation of the town. One of 
his sons Joshua (115) inherited the home farm (184) another son. 
Benjamin (103) set Plea in the west part of the town ot (191) and 
still another son, Philip Jr. (122) located him- elf about a mile 
east of the centre at {37) ana it is well worthy of notice, that 
in this active, bustling and shifting New England, xhese three 
farms have been, handed down from father to son for more than 150 
years, and are? still owned and occupied by descendants of the name; 
the first being owned, by Joseph, (121) the second by the heirs of 
Levi (111) and the third by ^rtemas (125). Philip ^oO'irich d. 15

"The xir^st Li an Interred in this Place." 
(In this connection I "oulo. say that there are several deaths 
recorded before his; where they were buried, I am unable to say.

prior to his may have been females and children, ana he may have

Was b. in Charlestown, 27 May 1733, In early life, he 
became distinguished for his apposition to the arbitrary measures 
of the parent government, and for his zealous exertions in support 
of civil liberty. Hut he had independence enough to dissent from 
some of the most violent measures proposed, and L.or this he incurred 
the obloquy of many whose zeal was only the ebullition of their passio: 
and who confounded all who had any moderation with those who '■••ere 
unfriendly to the cause of liberty. He m. In 1775, they came

returned to Charlestown, ana the same year, he was chosen a delegate 
to the Convention, which framed the Constitution of this state. 
In 1784, he was a delegate to the Continental Congress, and was

the war of the devolution, he was a Lieutenant of a 
company commanded by Captain ^zra Tovme, and was present 
at some of the mast important battles,- at Bunker Hill, 
Ticonderoga, etc. at the former, he was so close to the 
enemy that the tow wad from a gun lodged in his cockade 
hat, and burnt a large hole therein. The hardships he 
underwent induced a severe attack of fever and ague, which 
so impel red his health as to unfit him for any further 
military duty. Being advised to recruit his strength by 
a visit to the sea- coast, he went to Rockland, i.le. , and 
in 1779, he settled in Camden, Ue. Soon after this, an 
expedition of 20 patriots from Rockland resolved to Inflict 
severe chastisement upon General Thomas Goldthwait,of 
Hampden, He., a noted tory, for the obnoxious manner in 
which he had proved his disloyalty to the American cause. 
Thinking favorably of the plan, Earkness entered most 
heartily into the scheme, ana joined the purtv. -pproachins

for safety; the house was ransacked for its valuable^ the 
cattle were ariven from the bam, aaid thepart.y nroceeded 
homeward with their spoils. A book obtained by Earkness, 
containing Gen.Goldthwait* s autograph, is still in r ,he

fondness for books, and it is said of him that he read

(87) HARTWELL (WILLIAM HARTWELL came from the County of Kent In 
England in 1636 and settled in that part of Concord which is now 
Lincoln. By wif e Jessie, he had a son John, b. in C. 23 Feb. 1641, 
and d. in C, 12 Jan.. 1704, His youngest child by 2d wife Elizabeth 
was: 

EDWARD EARTWELL 

b. in Concord 1689, m. S arah Wilder b. in Lancaster, dau. 
of Thomas, and gd-dau. of Thomas and Hannah 7/ilder. 

Torrey in hi3 history of Fitchburg, says n he cane from Lancaster as 
early as 1724" etc. but I think this may be a mistake. He was 0.?. 
of lot No. 37, and in the assignment of lots, he is called "of Concord" 
as also were his uncles Jonathan and Samuel, who were both O.Ps. 
He built the second dwelling house in town, which stood on the Lancaster 
road, about 3 -| miles from the centre of the town, at (176) P'.a.r. 
1737 -L 0-16-8 200 -acres. -Both were members of the church but the 
record of their ad.f.c. is lost and he was a Deacon of the church, 
the 2d chosen* He was School Committee 1732, *33, '34, r 41, '44, '49, 
Town Treasurer, 1723, »32; Selectman, 1729, '30, *31, *38, *39, '40, f 41, 
f 43,* 45, * 46; often Representative, even when he was over 85 years 
of age, altho T there is no record of the years he was chosen; 
a Major of the militia; an office of far more dignity and importance 
than at the present time; a Justice of the Peace; and in 1750, was 
appointed a Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, which office he held 
xctil 1762. He was for many years the Clerk of the Original Proprietors- 
was a very fine penman, and wrote the original deed of every lot of 
land in the town, which then included the whole of the present city 
of Fitchburg a large portion of Ashby and a part of Towns end. He was 
not only one of the earliest settlers, but for a long period was 
deservedly one of the mo. t influential men in town. He possessed a 
strong mind, and an education superior to that of most of his 
fellow- townsmen. He was continually called upon to fill the moat 
important offices in town, n-e was one of those men whose sound 
judgment and energy so well qualify them to take the lead in the 
affairs of a new settlement, when the influence of such persons is 
so essential to its prosperity. Whenever any important or extra- 
ordinary business was to be accomplished, he was called upon to take 
charge of it. In his capacity of Major, he took the lead in scouring 
the woods, when the people were alarmed by the movements of the Indians. 
"And finally he died" as Whitney's History say, "in the ninety-seventh 
year of his age, as full of piety as of days." He died 17 February 
1785, 96. The place where he was buried is not known. The tradition 
among his descendants is, that he wished to be buried in the most 
private manner, as he feared that the Indians would disturb his grave.

It is often quite difficult to discriminate bet-veer the 
different ways of spelling this word. It is seen as Kayward, Haywood 
Heyward, Heywood, and Howard is doubtless derived from it. To add 
to the difficulty, members of the same family sonetiir.es write the 
name in different ways, and even the name of the sane person is 
found written in different ways. (John Heywood, of Concord, m. 17

makes this remark of th r -se two n^ries: "In utter despair of distin- 
guishing for this work between those -ho spell with or without the

I resolve to uni^e the two." Most of the following are written

and othervheres he is designated as Colonel John Hill. If be held 
that title — a high rank in those tines — he must have been a nan 
of influence and importance, but I know but very little about him. 
I think they lived not far from the centre of the town. He "-'as 
one of the 0.?. of Rindge, N.H. After he died, I believe his widow 
went to live with her dau. Martha in Peterboro, N.H. and some of

(229) H0DG3KIKS. 

This name is found in a variety of spelling in the 
records, and I am somewhat at a loss to say what is the general 
way of writing it. It is seen as Hogkin, Hogskin and Hodskis, 
Hodskins, Ilodgkin, Hodgkins, Hodgsking:^, Hotchkins, and Hoochkiss, 
the latter being the general modern way of spelling it. I have 
adopted the method at the head, as being the one adopted by 
Farmer and Savage in their Gen. Dictionaries and as the one most 
commonly found in the records, I presume the following are descend- 
ants of William of Ipswich inl665, and after-vards of Reading, but 
I know not the line of descent. 

HEZEKIi-ii H0DGSKIN3 

b. m. Mary They lived in the part of the town

with a long stick, I looked upon him as a wild man, and was in 
great fear of meeting him alone. He died in Shirley, unmarried.

containing ;he o. and r.b.c. and tne ad.f.c. rrora about the year 
1737 to 1750. ~hat record may have given more information concerning 
this family. I do not find his name on our tax-lists ana I am disposer 
to think that they lived within trie limits of Leominster, but 
were nearer the church here than in Leominster, and for that reason 
they attended and had children bapt. here. Certain am I that a man 
of this name v;aa a resident of Leominster, about that tire, whose 
descendants still live there. Children:

An Intention of m. was entered and posted 23 Sept. 1313,

is recorded in the Church Record, in the hand-writing of Rev. 
David Damon, as 15 November 1818, instead of 16 October 1817, as 
on his g-s. I.Ir. JJazaon was very methodical and ^articular, and 
kept a full record of the marriages, baptisms and deaths in town. 
The record of this death is made with full particulars of his 
disease and states that he attended the funeral in his ministerial 
capacity, ana I have not the slightest doubt that the Church 
Record is right, and the grave-stone wrong.

"The sweet remembrance of the Just, 
Shall flourish when he sleeps in dust." 
They had no children, so far as I can ascertain from the records. 
From the names of his children, I should judge that Phineas(371)

This name was undoubtedly derived originally from the 
name preceeding, Hutchins — a younger branch beconin.g Hutchin's son- 
the son of Hutchins. Such is the case with many other common names; 
as, John T s-son becomes Johnson; David's-son becomes Davidson; 
Robin 1 s-son, Robinson; Ri chard' s-son, Richardson, etc. etc. (George 
Hutchinson and Margaret, his wife, came from Lincolnshire, England, 
"in the "Griffin" in 1630, in the fleet with Gov.winthrop, remained 
for a time in Boston, and in 1632, were among the first settlers
